My Inspiration

OK, very indulgent, but wanted to post this!   My motivation/inspiration for the cycling challenge last October was "Steve Abraham's longest ride on Strava is 715 km, but I know that he went further than than that due to GPS glitchs.  I wonder if I can match his longest ride??"  And the whole project was born.  Steve is a low-key hero.  He doesn't have the money, fame, gold medals or rock-star lifestyle of Brad Wiggins, but more the numbers, anecdotes and respect which makes him my inspiration.  His blog is here:

So (and my apologies for doing the whole fanboy thing) here's a brief Facebook exchange......

And for those who want to know how we compare, Steve is still a far more accomplished cyclist than me or I'll ever be!  Here's a quick head to head.
